Java Programming is one of the most popular programming languages used to build applications; whether Web based applications or not, and platforms for various devices such as: handheld mobile devices, desktop computers, laptops, game consoles, medical devices, and so on. It was designed for flexibility; allowing developers to write codes that would run on any relevant machine, regardless of architecture or platform. More than 1 billion computers and 3 billion mobile phones worldwide run Java. That makes Java an enterprising programming language of great importance. Hence, this book is meant to assist in the acquisition of knowledge that would help an upcoming programmer start developing applications that could solve either business or scientific problems.
The book is made up of well-arranged ten (10) chapters that give its user a logical flow. Each chapter contains 2 minutes’-timed class work and exercises at the end, as well as the practical session, with which to practise what had been learnt. The last chapter is also made up of exercises that will aid the user in the mastery of the acquired skills.
